Volunteers from Burnett Elementary and the community joined KaBOOM! on to transform an empty site into a kid-designed, state-of-the-art playground in just six hours at Burnett Elementary. The new playground will help make play the easy choice for kids and families impacted by Hurricane Harvey in Houston. In September, kids from the surrounding community came together to draw their dream playground. The playground is based off their drawings and will provide more than 800 kids in Houston with a great, safe place to play following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Ensuring kids have safe places to play is critical to helping families and communities heal during times of recovery, as they continue to deal with the stress of lost homes, lost loved ones and lost routines. By creating and providing playspaces, this work will help kids and communities continue to regain a sense of normalcy, and make play an easier choice for families.
